Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system devised for Internet sites which support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other system, which can have a considerable impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for managing different real-time script-powered applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to indicate the location of the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the applications’ output and to restart or to remove any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven apps at no extra cost when you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a user-friendly interface, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is add the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
